IMO is an instant messaging and video calling app, that lets users connect over the internet. It’s also a micro social media that features several public as well as private groups and a section where people can talk over different topics and with people who share similar interests. Users can also chat with people in their geolocation with the ‘who’s online’ feature. IMO is available for Android, Windows, iOS and Mac.
